Wallpaper won't update

Not sure exactly what happened, but it's pretty annoying. I change my wallpaper pretty frequently with new pictures of my son. As Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is the default viewing program and I don't mind it, I open up pictures there, then right-click and choose "set as desktop background".

This has always changed my wallpaper right away without issue. Now, however, when I do this, the picture does not change. If I go to "display" under control panel and go to desktop, the new picture I selected is seen. Also, when I click "ok", the picture then updates. However, I never had to go to display properties before in order to update the picture. Also, if I open up the picture in IE instead of Picture Viewer, then when I click on "set as desktop background" it DOES change it immediately.

Any thoughts?
